Born & Birth stories





Your baby's crown-to-rump length is approximately 10 inches and the total length of your growing baby is around 15.75 inches. Your baby weighs about 2.4 pounds at this point. Your uterus is a little more than 3 inches above your bellybutton. Your weight gain at this time should be between 17 and 24 pounds.


Blood vessel in the umbilical cord. For several months, the umbilical cord has been the baby's lifeline to the mother. Nourishment is transferred from the mother's blood, through the placenta, and into the umbilical cord to the baby. If the mother ingests any toxic substances, such as drugs or alcohol, the baby receives these as well!

You will probably begin visiting your caregiver once every two weeks. Week 28 is an important week for testing. You will probably be having your glucose tolerance test, an iron level test and if you are Rh negative, you should have an antibody test. The antibody test will determine if you and your baby will have any reactions to each other's blood differences. The glucose test will check for gestational diabetes.

Your baby's brain continues to develop and is now forming the folds and grooves of a fully developed brain. The amount of tissues within the brain also continues to increase in large amounts. The hair that covers your baby's scalp is also getting longer. Your baby is now large enough for presentation to be determined and your doctor might be able to find out if your baby is at risk for being breech. If your baby is breech, don't panic. There is still time for the baby to rotate.

Okay so you and Kathy had SCH this time. That can be scary. I hope it has cleared up or decreased. My SCH/low lying placental pregnancy ended up in an abruption, it was a nightmare. I'm so happy you and Kathy are hanging in there.

Am tired my belly is big.

deebo - 26 days ago
Previa and a SCH.. I find out at the end of the month ... I don't sleep well when not knocked up, I usually function fine on 5 hours... Not so much while pregnant. I keep having horrible dreams, and ugh! Waiting for a CT scan to find out if my children's dad has cancer, or who knows what's wrong. Lmao. I really need to write a book. Except, I'd get bored half way through, and would make zombies show up..

lissie**** - 27 days ago
Deebo// I really don't ever sleep well but it's been worse lately too. I hope your placenta moved up too. It was previa right? that's why all the bleeding? I had previa this pregnancy again and mine moved up really surprisingly well. HOpe the same for you!!!

deebo - 28 days ago
THE HEARRRTTBBUUURRRNNNN!! TOTALLY OVER IT LOL. Is anyone else getting sleep? I'm not. We've got some cancer scares in my family now, so even more stress LOL I NEED TO WRITE A BOOK ON BAD LUCK! This week I go for my follow up ultrasound to see if my uterus has moved.. Hope it has! I can't wait for this baby, I want to meet her so much, and ...I need to figure out her name, haha..

lissie**** - 30 days ago
Kathy I am so happy you are hanging in there and your little bub too!!

kathy=^.^= - 31 days ago
I can't believe that in 12 weeks or less we will be meeting our new addition I am feeling blessed that I have made it this far. I hope that everyone is doing good

lissie**** - 36 days ago
Are you okay Mel?? did you go in?

Mel90 - 37 days ago
That's what I was thinking to I was wondering why he was worried or did sumthing all he said was u r dilated but if u have contractions for 5 hrs go to the hospital I was thinking that's a bit long to wait..its been 2 hrs and still havent gone away and there aren't any nurses available

lissie**** - 37 days ago
Since you've been dilating go in asap I think! They can help. And your doctor should have been concerned if you are dilating this early!

Mel90 - 37 days ago
I need help ladies.. I went to the doc last week told him I was having a lot of cramping pain so the doc check my cervix and told me I was dilated he didn't say how much and didn't seem to be worried about it I been cramping for 1hr now..how long should I wait to go to the hospital or should I wait til my next doc appointment????

lissie**** - 38 days ago
good news for you today Juliesmom!!

Juliemom24 - 38 days ago
I passed!!! In fact, my blood sugar was so low she made me eat, haha. I'm relieved to have that over. It was such a hassle last time and this time it was a breeze. Maybe you'll get lucky and be in and out in just over an hour Lissie. Baby was also measuring right on. Yay!

lissie**** - 38 days ago
SOrry you ladies have been feeling yucky

lissie**** - 38 days ago
I'm supposed to have my glucose test this week too. I can just walk in but I keep putting it off! I don't want to be there for 2 hours!

Juliemom24 - 39 days ago
Thanks Letroise. Today was much better than yesterday! Tomorrow I have my glucose test. I'll be glad to get that over with. I also was able to hear the baby with my sister in law's stethoscope yesterday and it was awesome!

letroise11 - 40 days ago
This third trimester has been yuck, I agree! I have been having a lot of lower back pain and bloating. The nightmares are the best that include the leg cramps. Boy fun times! Juliemom hope you get better.

Juliemom24 - 40 days ago
I've been sick this week:( Baby was sick first and then hubby and I got it really fast. Between that and the pregnancy insomnia that just started I think I've had a really great welcome to my third trimester;)

letroise11 - 42 days ago
That's great news lissie. Juliemom I don't think I could run that far when I'm not pregnant. I really wish I enjoyed exercising more but honestly I don't!

lissie**** - 42 days ago
Thank you Juliesmom! :) I still haven't walked yet :/ But I look forward to it. Just been having too many BH and painful contractions etc.

lissie**** - 42 days ago
Hello Aby! Hope your pregnancy is going well. Good to hear from another person in our group :)

aby - 42 days ago
Hi ya'll,how's ever1 doing,ya'll comment really keeps me going happy to join happy pple let's get it rolling

Juliemom24 - 44 days ago
YAY Lissie! So glad that your ultrasound went well. What a relief that the baby is doing great and the previa is gone!!! Exercising is just starting to get harder, as it should be I guess with a big belly. I went jogging yesterday and could only make it a mile and a half. Baby was so low it hurt. Thank goodness we have less than three more months.

lissie**** - 45 days ago
I plan to start exercising again!! Even if at this point that means slowly walking ha ha!

lissie**** - 45 days ago
Our ultrasound showed that baby's heart is perfect! And my previa has moved up quite a bit! Now 5cm from cervix and safe! They couldn't believe my good results and had to look at my earlier ultrasounds to see if they had made mistake early on--but they didn't and were just surprised how well things had cleared up for baby and I!!!!

lissie**** - 45 days ago
I've gained about the same ish. 21 from the dr accounts. I had lost 10 before being weighed by dr but I guess it's fair since I had recently gained a few-- technically I've gained a net of 13.5? But I'm up about 21 from the weight I was at for a long time and had only just gained 7 pounds just before i got prego. I don't think I made any sense typing that ha ha!

letroise11 - 46 days ago
Juilemom unfortunately when I was pregnant with my son I gained 50 pounds, then I wasn't able to breast feed him so I kept that weight until I got pregnant this time and I guess it boosted my metabolism. Hopefully that won't be your case.

Juliemom24 - 46 days ago
Letroise, that is no fun. I don't understand why people have to be mean. Sorry:( Hope today is better. I just weighed myself yesterday and I've gained 20 lbs so far. How is everyone else doing? I gained 55 with dd but I can't imagine gaining another 35 lbs in the next 13 weeks. That would be torture!

letroise11 - 47 days ago
Had to deal with most difficult customers today. I can't understand how people can be so rude. My poor HR ended in the office crying due to her customer. Somedays I wish I was a hermit and didn't have to come into contact with people at all😩😩😩😩

letroise11 - 48 days ago
Agreed! But this is really going by fast to me! Halloween is just around the corner than a new baby

lissie**** - 49 days ago
Wow 28 weeks. I think I will feel even more shocked when it says 30 weeks.

ASergeantsWife - 71 days ago
28 weeks in a have been put on restriction :(. No lifting over 20 pounds, no stairs and as little walking as possible. BLAH!!!! Maleiya is doing well just trying to make her appearance to early. Anyway restriction had seemed to help and the contractions quite a bit less frequent though the pressure is still great.So I have used my time to make her some things, a light pink sweater, bonnet and bootie set, and alternating between a chevron afghan and a Monogrammed Blanket for her crib. Thankfully the other three babies, Si, Jax and Ava (3,2 and 1) are content to be in the same room with me and play.:) Other than that things are going well, blood pressure is good measurements are good and I have gained 8 pounds and lost 12!Heartburn and Insomnia are bad but controlled so no real complaints.

aksnods - 77 days ago
Passed the three hour which is good cause I had gestational diabetes with my first baby. Rib is out though and hurts a lot

jojo - 78 days ago
Ah that's good to know.. I know from what I've read that she has until at least 36wks to move so plenty of time just wondered if you guys knew.. bonita sorry to hear you have to have the 3hr test.. I'm sure you'll pass it tho.. not heard from matoks but then the weeks seem quiet in general xx

jojo09 1 pink 1 blue - 78 days ago
Hello girls...Jojo my baba is lying sideways too - head and feet under my right ribs bum on the left. Am not too worried about her position, like Bonita said still some turning time available. Defo keep an eye on ur spotting, fingers crossed u wont get anymore but a further scan to check on ur fibroid sounds good - at least they r monitoring it for u chick :o) Havent heard from Matoks for a few weeks, hopefully shes around safe and sound? Xx

bonitadiane - 78 days ago
Hello ladies... I did get my results. And I failed. Boooo. Not but much but enough to have me do the 3 hour test. Auuurrgh. Seriously hoping I pass the 3 hour!!!!! JoJo ... I'm guessing my lil bean is sideways too as I tend to feel his feet/hands on my sides. I think we are still ok? I think it's not till 30-32 weeks they flip head down? I think. Lol Twinny so happy you had this week off, hope your enjoying yourself!!! Vacation time is always soo treasured. JoJo hope the spotting has stopped. And hope you can get an ultrasound to confirm all is well with fibroid too. Ladies has anyone heard from Matoks?? Wondering how she's doing?

jojo - 79 days ago
Does anyone else know what position baby is lying atm??? My little one is staying transverse/oblique (sideways) reason I ask is by now on all my previous pregnancies my babies have been head down.. I know she still has a few weeks, just wondered xx

jojo - 79 days ago
Morning girls.. midwife told me to keep an eye on it and if I'm at all concerned about me or baby or if the spotting turns heavier to go straight to the main hospital. . She did also ring the hosp and asked for me to be referred to a consultant to get a scan in case it's related to my fibroid so waiting now to see what they say...

jojo09 1 pink 1 blue - 79 days ago
Good morning girls. 29wks for me today woohoo :o) Love how quickly it seems to be going! Hope ur all well this morning xx

jojo09 1 pink 1 blue - 79 days ago
Excellent news on the pram Jojo, I love ebay sometimes the bargains r fab! I dont know what to do,whether to invest in another one or wait it out for a buggy style when shes abit older. Hmm. Welcome back Bonita! Good to hear u had a fab time! Hope the heat wasnt too bad but sounds like u enjoyed ur break so thats brill! I'm in my second week off, back to work monday for 9wks...where has the time gone!! Its lovely sharing updates with u girls, having someone going thru the same is awesome. Lets hope the rest of all our journeys r none bumpy plesant rides! Bonita did u manage to get ur GD results? And Jojo, what did the midwife say about ur spotting? Is everything ok? Xxx.

jojo - 79 days ago
Well hello haha we missed you bonita.. glad you had such an awesome break with your family hun :-) did you have any luck getting your results? ?

bonitadiane - 79 days ago
Hello lovely ladies... I'm back but not on track. I'm exhausted!!! It always hurts to return to norm after vacation but it's that much worse when preggers. Blaaaahhhh. Vacation was sooooo relaxing and nice. It was so wonderful to spend a week at the cottage with family. So perfect. Sad to be back to be honest. I felt great and slept awesome. I swear my body makes boys waaaayyyy better then girls.lol I had an OB app. Yesterday that was to tell me results to GD. But unfortunately there was an accident on highway and I was going to be super late so canceled. I did ask nurse for results and she stated they hadn't received it from lab yet. I'm soooo upset bc this lab always does this. This morning I'm going to call and freaaaaak out!!! Well ladies just wanted to check in... See how your all doing. Can't believe I'm 29 weeks today. Wow.

jojo - 80 days ago
We found the same twinny and like you I got shot of everything before the move as I wasn't planning anymore lol we've bought the silver cross surf but there was no way I could afford £800 esp when this little lady is most definitely our last, so we decided to look at second hand ones. . We've spent weeks on Ebay waiting for the right one and I'm so glad we did.. it looked in fab condition when we went to see it but once I got it home and stripped it down washed it etc.. it looks brand new. No one would know the difference. I'm so pleased with it :-) we had the pushchair, car seat, isofix base and all the bits raincovers for pram and car seat, footmuff, newborn inserts etc.. and paid £180, it's 10mths old.. absolute bargain lol got MW today, had a little more spotting so will mention it.. am too loving these movements.. they are amazing xxx

jojo09 1 pink 1 blue - 80 days ago
Aww fantastic Jo! Bet ur delighted :o) I havent even looked at prams, I sold mine last year when we decided we werent having anymore kids haha cost us £600 aswell! Typical. How r u doing? I'm loving all these little ressuring movements, thry keeping me going at the moment! Xx

jojo - 80 days ago
I'VE BOUGHT MY PRAM!!! Yaay finally lol so exciting.. it's currently staring at me in my living room. . How mad is it to think in around 12-14wks there'll be a new baby girl in there :-) :-) :-)

jojo - 80 days ago
Fantastic news hun.. definitely yay you :) xx

jojo09 1 pink 1 blue - 80 days ago
NOT! Yey me xxx

jojo09 1 pink 1 blue - 81 days ago

jojo09 1 pink 1 blue - 81 days ago
